Review : Cosatto Hug

I can remember the first time I saw a Cosatto Hug and knew I wanted to try one.  There was something about the Hug which spoke to me.  The car seat geek in me loved the side protection and the deep padded seat.  The Cosatto 4 year guarantee and gorgeous patterns also helped.

The Cosatto Hug was quick and simple to install when following the instructions.  Upon second installation you would no longer need the instructions.  I did struggle to get the second pin back in place but a little wiggle and it soon went in.

In bright beautiful patterns the Cosatto Hug certainly is stunning to look at.  The soft padded leather sides accompanied by deep soft cushioned seat puts it on a par with a luxury car seat.  The Hug can is used with the harness and seat insert for Group 1 and without for Group 2,3.  There have been no complaints from either child with regard to comfort and from my own perspective no complaints with regards to safety.

The head rest is easily adjustable and in doing so adjusts the harness height.  This ensures the harness is always at the correct position based on the height of your child.  The head rest looks well padded and the whole seat seems to 'hug' your children into safety.

There are only 2 minor niggles for me, the first is it is a seat belt installation which does not give as good a fit as ISOfix [since we received our Hug there is now an ISOfix version] and the second is the harness does twist quite easily.  It is simple to untwist the harness but it does need to be done in order to ensure safety of your child.

Overall I do love the Cosatto Hug, it is one of the most stylish car seats I think we have had the privilege to review.

We have been sent a Cosatto Hug car seat to review.  All words ad opinions are my own.
